Oberon Adds THE BIG QUIZ THING, MORTIFIED & More to Fall Lineup
YOU'RE THE EXPERT
Tuesday, November 5 at 7:00PM
You're the Expert bridges the worlds of comedy and academia, attracting a comedy audience while providing them withmeaningful content. Each show features an expert in a somewhat obscure field. A group of hilarious comedians try to guess what in the world our expert studies all day long. Afterwards, the expert dissects how wildly wrong (or right) the ideas about her field were. The show ends with an interview where we find out what our expert does and why their field is important. It's funny, it's interactive, and you end up actually learning something.
